Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running SuSE 10.0 from a Live CD, if that helps. I'm trying to get rwx permissions on a bunch of extras; a USB external HD, my Travel Drive, and my XP partition. Here's what I get when I type in "mount" in the Terminal window for my external HD, Travel Drive, and XP partition, respectively: /dev/sdb1 on media/ SCSIO_VOL1 type subfs (ro, nosuid, nodev, sync, fscntfs, procuid, nls=utf8)
/dev/sda1 on media/ Travel Drive (ro....and so on)
/dev/hda1 on windows/C type ntfs (ro, noexec...and so forth)
Ideally I'd like to have rwx permissions on my root account and the account I normally use for all three of these things. Is that possible?
Thanks for the input. I am a bit confused, though. For openSuSE, do I download the file that says, "ntfs-3g-1.1004-3.ccj0.i586.rpm" or "ntfs-3g-devel-1.1004-3.ccj0.i586.rpm"? I think it's the former, but I just want to make sure. Again, bro, thanks.
I have not used SuSE specifically, but the general convention is that "*-devel" packages are the source code or header information for a program, used if you want/need to compile other programs against that one (I.E, if you had a program that you wanted to compile which built on top of NTFS-3G's functionality).
But for everyday use, you would use the normal package. So in this case you would want the first package, as you guessed.
